      Lotto surges towards 600 million

      Powerball jackpot surges to $600 million dollars.

      Powerball players are rejoicing as the prize money continues to climb, currently sitting at $600 million dollars for Saturday's drawing.

      Southwest Georgians are fully aware of the lotto's price tag, and are already dreaming of how to spend their millions of dollars.

      "I would probably help out cancer patients, and then payoff my home," said one Albany resident.

      "I'd shop till I dropped, and then shop a bit more," said another Albany resident.

      The ball rolls tonight, and if you want a chance at the jackpot you can find a ticket at any local convenience store.
